Physical therapy

At UCHealth SportsMed, our therapists diagnose and treat individuals with an array of pain and dysfunction.  Our team of physical therapists and athletic trainers are continually updating and extending their knowledge with post-graduate education to bring you the most up to date treatment options.  Competitive and recreational athletes alike can benefit from our functional approach to rehabilitation which includes running analysis, bike fit, biometric testing, and dry needling.  State of the art equipment including our anti-gravity treadmill and cold laser can advance recovery and quickly return you to play. You don’t have to be an elite athlete to benefit from our personalized care.  Even a non-athlete or casual weekend warrior will receive individual, compassionate, and specialized care to design a program that meets your personal goals.

Occupational therapy

Our occupational therapists at UCHealth SportsMed are nationally recognized as leaders in education.  Our team includes orthopedic board-certified hand specialists that communicate closely with your physician to provide individual and specialized care. Our compassionate team of occupational therapists uses their expertise to diagnosis and treat impairments with custom splinting, cold laser, fluidotherapy and exercise, returning you to work and play.

Speech therapy

Our speech therapists are highly respected in the community for the quality and compassionate care they provide to all patients.  The team works closely with occupational and physical therapists to increase each patient’s independence with daily activities. Treatments work to restore verbal and non-verbal communication, using techniques that improve memory, information processing, and reasoning.  They diagnose and treat dysphagia, problems with swallowing, and work extensively with patients that have had a stroke. Our team is involved with the community, developing and leading classes that bring treatment into real-life situations.  Our speech team works on multiple levels of communication to help our patients achieve as much independence as possible.

Pediatric therapy

Come meet our pediatric team, at the “little house” where all the fun begins!  Physical, occupational, and speech therapists work together creating interactive and functional therapy programs for our little patients.  Family and friends are invited to participate with our therapists, driving a non-threatening environment where kids can advance strength, balance, speech, and cognitive skills.  Our team works on life skills on multiple levels to reach each child’s potential for independence in an informal and enjoyable, but constructive environment.

$10 sports injury screening

The professionals at SportsMed understand the need for athletes and sports enthusiast to remain injury free to enjoy their chosen sport. That’s why SportsMed offers an opportunity to get an irritating problem checked out at a reasonable price.  Sports injury screenings cost $10 and do not require a physician’s order.

AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill

SportsMed’s provides rehabilitation patients with this tool to help them get back on their feet sooner and push themselves further. The Treadmill allows patients to walk or run, while experiencing only a percentage of their body weight. The technique allows for less pain and faster recoveries.

Concussion management

SportsMed offers $15 baseline ImPACT tests to athletes ages 11-59. In case of a concussion, this baseline test provides the cognitive standard from which to measure an athlete’s progress during the recovery and treatment of a concussion. The test should be re-taken every two years.

Post-concussion injury rehabilitation

A 5-step Return to Play protocol was put in place by the Colorado Senate and approved by the state legislature, which SportsMed and local physicians follow. Education for the injured athlete and parents is provided at the time of injury.


Although your insurance provider may not require a physician’s referral, it is a UCHealth policy that a referral is required for SportsMed appointments to ensure that the best medical care is provided to our patients. Your physician can fax your prescription directly or you can bring it the day of your appointment. See our fax number above.
